I would spend your money on a good set of horses. If you have a good surface to make your cut on it makes a huge difference.
I like these ones because then have a ton of uses. The med one works good as a strong stable table. http://featherliteladders.com/wp-con...700-series.jpg
With a set like that if you take your time you can make cuts as good with a skill saw as a table saw.
A highly skilled craftsmen may be could make cuts as good with a skill saw as was a table saw, a novice couldn't even come close in most cases.
